Critical reception and word of mouth will decide whether this sells 3-4 million or 6-7 million. I'll go ahead and say 6 million.

What is walky-talky feels?  What the hell are you guys trying to force into reality that isn't real?

I'm dead serious, I want to know what a walky-talky feels narrative is since I actually played the GOW serious before and actually know what it is about.  I know that if anything GOW 3 is the inspiration for TLoU but you keep pumping that bullshit like you actually know what you are talking about. 

What was God of War III about?  What was the narrative?  I not gonna let you get away with making crap up.   What was God of War 3's narrative?  Was it not about a man who lost his family and become a father figure to a girl who reminds him of his daughter while he escorts her to Mount Olympus?  Hmm, sound familiar?  Back off.   Games didn't begin with TLoU.   God of War has ALWAYS been about Kratos' family.  It is kinda the point of the whole series.

Anyone who thinks that GOW copied off of TLOU is so backwards insane, blatantly lying or on some group thought bandwagon that its to the point of insulting. 

But now, since TLoU is so popular, games can't be about what they were always about.   You called me blind.  Is any game with a story TLoU or is it games with stories that feature an older and younger character and are produced by Sony regardless of the actual setting, story, relationship, history of the game, actual gameplay, or common sense all TLoU?  Yes they are because you can see for real.   I would have given you Days Gone because there are actual similarities but not this god killing hack and slash title.   Nope.  Not gonna pretend to be that stupid.

Just because GoW has a story, doesn't make it TLoU.  That's not what I'm talking about and I have no idea what you're on about with "GoW is inspiration" for anything bollocks.

This game looks and sounds nothing like a GoW game.  Every trailer has this guy named Kratos "being a dad", as if he wasn't a horrible, genocidal, mankind apocalypse bringer.  This guy has a generic axe and does a special move where he... sorta tosses it?  Right, and he can't jump either.  And just for good measure of keeping character continuity, they went ahead and changed his voice too.  Why?  Because this is God of Feels, son.

The main point I'm trying to point at is how much walking around the player does in the trailers.  Walking around, stopping to watch a cutscene of a cliff falling and Kratos just... jumping it.  Instead of letting the player do it, he just sorta does it in the cutscene.  Walking around + babysitting little kid + watching cutscenes of your character do things instead of playing a video game = 10/10 amirite?

Before I go plagiarizing, most of what I'm saying is summarized in a video I completely agree with.  If you take a moment to watch it, you might see what I'm getting at.

TGBS is a known God of War hater. He has always disliked every game in the series now he finds a way to spread hatred and misinformation for the upcoming game too. Any credit I gave you, I take it back immediately. If you agree with him, as it seems you do, you're totally oblivious to what God of War has stood for as a series upto this point and I doubt anything Santa Monica ever does will please you as you'll find a way to hate on it.

The reason I call him a hater rather than a critic is because of his fanboyish nature. He criticises every aspect of God of War whether good or bad. He loves Devil May Cry I get it but he's also oblivious to the cons in the Devil May Cry games as well and ignores just in how many ways God of War games surpass them in quality. There is a reason Devil May Cry is appealing to only particular tastes despite having great combat, its because every other aspect of the first 2 Devil May Cry games is crap. God of War gives good combat mechanics in a package that feels competent or grand in other senses too while Devil May Cry as much as I like it is a very one note series of games especially before Devil May Cry 3.

This guy also had the galls to call the Ratchet and Clank reboot as a disappointment. He has no taste. I will give him praise for his spoken skills, that's probably the reason he has such a following because his arguments have no objectivity.

read dead on october 26, so god of war will have 0 competition for months.

It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

My prediction was right.

Yep. It was better for people to over predict (which wasn't the case, after all) than to under (as many of us did). I suspected 8 million up until its Meta was revealed. Then I knew this would blast right by 10m. 

So, you can join in the glory of the folks in here:
